At the beginning of the Autumn term, Art and Photography students from Year 12 visited the National Wool Musuem in Dre-fach Felindre. This was arranged to give students a positive start to their AS coursework studies, utilising a local industry in order to gain precious first hand research. Over two days, after an informative tour of the museum, they undertook several ‘mini’ briefs which included a Photathon, Sketchathon, documentary stye photography and observational drawing tasks. Art students also took part in a felting workshop under the excellent tutoring of Non! Many students were suprised to discover this interesting resource in their local vicinity and some are planning a return visit in the near future. Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn would like to extend its grateful thanks to the staff at the National Wool Museum.
